I must have something set wrong on FireFox because my results of a Fold3 search will not go to the A-Z sort--it always stays on relevance. Fold3 search did go to the A-Z sort on Edge Browser so I'm hoping someone can tell me what I have set wrong on Firefox.

I work with text a lot in the browser. In Chrome, I can select a piece of text, then press Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down arrow to select paragraphs above or below the selected text. Also in Chrome, I can press Ctrl+up/down arrow to move the text cursor one paragraph above or one paragraph below when I type. But in FireFox, the combination ctrl+up/down arrow duplicates home and end. Tell me how can I assign actions to these keyboard shortcuts to work with paragraphs?

Windows 10 x64 Pro Firefox 92.0

Is there a way to restore the appearance of Firefox Bookmarks to v88 or earlier? The extra space between each Bookmark is a pain and none of the "fixes" seem to work.

I am not up with messing around with css files to make things seem as they was.

I have Proton Colors Add-on and that supposed to make things look as they did before but they do not.

When Firefox updated to 91.0 I reinstalled v88 which was fine - apart from Firefox nagging me on a daily basis to update to 92.0 which I stupidly did.

Any suggestions please?

Search Shortcuts keywords don't work in search bar, despite wording of help text

In Settings > Search > Search Shortcuts, the help text currently reads "Choose the alternative search engines that appear below the address bar and search bar when you start to enter a keyword."

This seems to imply that entering keywords into the search bar will bring up alternative search engines. However, this is not the case; only the address bar responds to Search Shortcut keywords, while entering keywords into the search bar will pass the entire string (including keyword) to whichever your default search engine was.

Either the wording has to be modified to clarify that search engine keywords only work when typed into the address bar, or search keyword functionality has to be enabled on the search bar.

It looks like I'm not the only one. I want to make yahoo my search engine but it's no longer an option in FF tools. I don't like google but even Duck Duck Go, reverts to Google. What's going on? I know I can add Yahoo or DDG as an add-on but that brings me to yahoo's website. All I want is for the yahoo search engine which used to be in tools and is no longer there. I've been using the yahoo search engine for years and about 5 months ago or so, after an update it disappeared. Even though I have Duck Duck Go as my default search engine, doing a search it changes to google. Please don't shove google down our throats. BTW, restoring doesn't help and I use the search bar for searching, not the address bar.

Using F3 & F4 for something other than copy/paste is like reassigning the return key to act like the delete key.

This is the one feature of Firefox that prevents me from making it my default browser. I can't even override it using the Mac OS shortcut overrides.

Any way to do this in Firefox?

I have gone into my Add-Ons and enabled the "Show lower RoboForm toolbar" option. But every day when I open Firefox on my Windows 10 computer (fully updated), the Roboform Add-on lower toolbar has been unselected. I have to go back into Add-Ons and re-select it every day. How do I make this stop? It used to happen once in awhile, but now it's every day. I use RoboForm many times a day, and this is really annoying.

I had about 5 you-tube download add-ons, I always had the download text under the video, and buttons on my tool bar, everything Disappeared and I can't download any videos. I removed all the you-tube apps and reinstalled and nothing changes, is there an add-on that will give me the download option? I am using windows 10 and everything I have has been updated, and I have been doing this for years so something has changed.

Dear Supporter,

I got a notification from a website that FireFox is not up to date. On closer examination, this is indeed the case. Updates were supposed to be done automatically.

I changed Ubuntu's update server to main server; this had no effect.

In settings preferences under updates I see: FireFox Updates Keep FireFox up to date for the best performance, stability and security. Version 88.0 (64bit) Whats new Mozilla FireFox for Ubuntu canonical – 1.0

There is no option to check or disable for automatic updates. As far as I can remember, update to this version was automatically.

In settings help under About Firefox nothing appears about updates.

Extensions: DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS notification: system-up-to-date I assume that should be allright?…

Thunderbird is 68.10.0 That seems ok...

Thank you very much

A maximum number of times when I full screen Firefox some of its border also displays on the second screen I use which is rather annoying.

Is there a way to fix the problem? I've also uploaded an Image showing the same, I know the background and the borders look kind of the same but that is the Firefox border above the Sony logo.
